We all remember those carefree childhood days with the breeze in our hair and the freedom to go wherever we wanted, whenever we wanted on our bike.

Few things in life are better than a cycle ride, whether it’s a trip to visit friends, a daily commute or a pedal to the countryside.

Whether you’re still a regular cyclist or you haven’t been on a bike for years, there are lots of ways for you to get out and about on two wheels.


And this year, it’s even better than ever – thanks to the Big Bike Revival!

It’s a fab opportunity to remind yourself of the fun of cycling or learn new skills, no matter what your age or your experience.

There are loads of local events and activities taking place, so why not find what’s happening near you?


Repairs, Skills, fun

Bike recycling centres and community groups across England and Scotland are taking part in the Big Bike Revival.

There will be friendly mechanics on hand to make repairs or show you easy maintenance tips, activities for all ages to enjoy, cycle rides and plenty of ways to learn how you can make the most of getting about by bike.


Can’t make it to any events? Don’t worry! These super centres and local community groups are on hand to offer you free advice and great-value services all through the year, so you can always find your nearest bike recycling centre and pop in another time.

You can even join in by simply taking the bike with you when you’re walking the dog, riding out for a family picnic, or giving cycling to work a go



The Big Bike Revival has been organised by Cycling UK, the cyclists’ champion, to help more people reap the rewards of cycling.

With over 130 years’ experience, Cycling UK (formerly called CTC) is an independent charity that works to inspire people to cycle and keep them cycling.


Cycling UK champions a simple belief – that cycling is a wonderful gift that should remain accessible and available to everyone. We will do whatever it takes to make sure more individuals and families can experience the joys of cycling and the freedom of our roads.

The Big Bike Revival is just one of Cycling UK’s many projects. To find out more, head over to www.cyclinguk.org.
